Peasants' Paintings Of Tengchong County,Baoshan

As a special kind of painting emerging under specific historical and social conditions, Tengchong peasant paintings can date back to the earlier agricultural society when handicrafts-closely related to people's production and life-were created, such as papercuts, clay figurine, shadow-play figurines, window papercuts, engravings and New-year/festival pictures.

Tengchong peasant paintings began to emerge in the 1970s out of the public painting activities. Paintings of this kind remain rare in China, astonishing people for their numbers, numerous authors and yet miraculous genres.

These paintings can be match of those by farmers in Jinshan of Shanghai and Hu County of Shaanxi Province. And seven out of ten painters belong to such ethnic minorities as the Lisu, Dai and Wa etc. 

Tengchong peasant painters excel in basing their creations on the folk art form of their own and real life. By employing a special angle, they always unveil the concealing beauty in common things. One after another, numerous paintings are drawn with simplicity, naturalness and intuition, expressing their love to life, happiness to harvest, expectation for future, and pursuit for love and better life.
